aA UPDATE FOR MARCH 2009

its a buffalo 'Don't Be Scared' album available now

Following a groundswell of support in their home city of Manchester, its a buffalo (all lower case, no apostrophe please) are set to release their barnstorming debut album Don’t Be Scared.

its a buffalo are four best mates who also happen to be in a band. Together, they’ve forged their own distinctive sound - Million Dollar Bash Rock n Roll kids - built on drums hit hard – really hard – plus chiming riffs and the perfectly contrasted voices of lead singers Ben and Steve (Ben’s the one with the rasp; Steve has the cleaner tone).

We reckon it’s the kind of record we’ve been waiting for, for yonks: a heartfelt, rabble rousing debut by a gang to believe in. Mark our words – there’ll be hordes of fans copying Ben’s trademark ‘80s tennis player look by the end of year. Chalk flew up. Don’t be scared.

"In their mind these Manc newbies are a kind of depression-era US
country band. In reality they're a bawdy indie pop group from
Manchester. So it's a winning trick that lets them keep one
convincing foot in each world without their breeches tearing. An
rresitble debut
." Uncut
